Wright Home Parlor Decorated for Christmas, Original Site, Dayton, Ohio, circa 1900

Summary

Christmas was a special time in the Wright home. Neither Wilbur, Orville nor Katharine had children, but older brother Lorin lived nearby with his youngsters. The Wright family's tree overflowed with presents for nieces and nephews. Certainly no Christmas was as exciting as that of 1903, which came just eight days after the Wrights' first airplane flights at Kitty Hawk.
